Neuroendoscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure whereby a neurosurgeon removes a tumour or cyst through small holes in the skull or through the mouth or nose. Neuroendoscopy enables neurosurgeons to access areas of the brain that cannot be reached by traditional surgery.

This book is a guide to endoscopic neurological surgery procedures for neurosurgeons.

Divided into sixteen sections, the text begins with an overview of the history of neuroendoscopy, endoscopic ventricular anatomy, endoscopes and instrumentation, and approaches to the ventricular system. The following chapters cover surgical techniques for different conditions.

Each topic is divided into two parts with a current literature review and a “how to” section detailing the technique as a step by step process. The book concludes with discussion on risks and complications.

Authored by a recognised, Texas-based expert in the field, the comprehensive text is further enhanced by clinical and surgical photographs and illustrations.
